Duotone Platinum Series Boom

The super-lightweight carbon PLATINUM in AEROSPACE PREPREG TECHNOLOGY is designed for experienced and performance-oriented riders with its ultra-stiff monocoque design. Word has long since got around that even PWA team riders of other rig brands buy the PLATINUM. 

In order to meet the toughest challenges, three fully customised concepts are at the start:
› Wave >< Freestyle (140/150)
› Wave >< Freeride (160)
› Slalom >< Formula (170/190/240) 

Wave series: 
The bending line of the short lengths with a smaller opening angle at the front and wider tail end combine to form the EVEN CURVE, which ensures a more even pull on the mast and backhand. This improves handling when riding the waves and lessens fatigue when performing freestyle moves. The iTAIL WAVE FITTING with patented Loop-Loop-Go fitting (perfectly frictionless rope alignment) and complete nonslip grip coating is installed to match the range of use. For maximum grip comfort, the tail end is still inserted. By popular request, the PLATINUM is now also available in a MEGA.SLIM version as the thinnest carbon boom worldwide with only 24.0 mm tube diameter (140–180 cm).

Hybrid series: 
The wave/freeride version with HYBRID.CURVE was developed specifically for sail sizes 4.5 to 7.8, which can unfold optimally – in the truest sense of the word. For the very best grip comfort and secure hold when performing duck gybes, the tail end is half coated with Pro-Grip (INSIDE GRIPPED TAIL). The low weight, iFRONT 2.0 front end and the stiffness of the monocoque design make it the highest-quality wave/freeride boom currently available.

Race series: 
The large PLATINUM sails have tried-and-tested race/slalom bend curves. The 30 mm tube diameter and the iFRONT 2.0 front end combine to achieve unbeatable stiffness. 
The length 170–230 cm, however, has a 28.5 mm tube diameter, which is ideal for small slalom sails and all freeride sail sizes.

The PLATINUM 190 and 240 have custom ONE BODY OUTSIDE TAIL tail ends for 20% more stiffness, so maximum length can be achieved without compromising on rigidity. An additional highlight is the iTAIL RACE FITTING, whose Teflon POM plastic rollers minimise friction. Absolutely unique: The ropes can even be looped while an outhaul trimming system is in use (patent pending). Technology has its price, so don’t be surprised!

IFRONT 2.0 THE LIGHTEST FRONT-END ON EARTH! The technical masterpiece which makes all Duotone booms even more functional: iFRONT 2.0 the latest front-end of the next generation. It doesn’t just look slimmer and smoother, the iFRONT 2.0 is also a whopping 35% lighter than its predecessor! With 345 grams it is the lightest front-end on the market! 90% of all other booms on the market are equipped with the same front-end from China, which usually differs only in color or design details. Especially in major components we at Duotone are investing heavily in research and development to be far ahead of the competition. A prime example of this is the completely redesigned and absolutely unique iFRONT 2.0 front-end; it combines maximum ease of use with highest functionality, lowest weight and guaranteed durability. For the first time the construction of the iFRONT 2.0 combines the advantages of both concepts in one front-end:

A - Vertical stiffness: Unlike other front-ends we use 50% longer stainless steel axle-bolts which are directly connected to the side walls. Thus we obtain a maximum vertical/torsion stiffness, which results in an extremely direct connection/transmission of boom to mast (= maximum performance).

B - Horizontal flexibility: The partially recessed center of the collar gives the iFRONT 2.0 a kind of hinge function, so that the collar fits to any mast diameter without any gap (= very smooth on the mast and extremely slip resistant). We know of no other front-end that fits so smoothly around the mast and thus effectively protects the mast.

This exceptional fit is guaranteed on SDM as well as RDM masts as the iFRONT 2.0 can easily be adapted through the exchange of 2 different friction pads.

It is an open secret that different conditions require front-ends with different vertical/torsional stiffness so that the rig can develop its maximum potential yet the comfort doesn’t suffer. For this reason, we deliver the new iFRONT 2.0 in two different stiffness options that are tailored to the individual disciplines and requirements:

Stiffness I with 15% vertical flexibility has a very low flex for direct power transmission yet maximum control and comes with all RED, SILVER, as well as GOLD and PLATINUM (up to 170) booms.
Stiffness III with 0% vertical flexibility for uncompromizing torsion-stiffness and maximum performance on large sails comes with all GOLD and PLATINUM (190 and up) booms.
Of course, we remain true to our promise of long-term compatibility even with the iFRONT 2.0. Therefore it is 100% retro-compatible with older Duotone booms that can be upgraded and tuned.
